Engadget Summary

The mix of new features and an ever-growing App Store will be potent to new buyers -- but pricing schemes amounting to hundreds more for current owners might give existing iPhone owners reason for pause. Ultimately, it's a great time to jump ship, but we've come to expect a bit more from Apple.
